Integrating Thermal, Mechanical, and Fluid Dynamic Design Elements When Mitigating TRP


Mitigating or preventing thermal runaway propagation (TRP) continues to be one of the most challenging aspects of module and pack design. This 60-minute Webinar will explore considerations engineers must address when developing a thermal runaway propagation strategy for Li-ion batteries.

Topics include:

  • Specifics of the thermal, mechanical, and fluid-dynamic design envelope within a Li-ion battery
  • The order in which those three elements’ challenges should be addressed
  • Design tools to help visualize the problem and its potential solutions

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
